University Climate Survey
K-State 2025 calls for "a work environment that encourages creativity, excellence, and high morale in faculty and staff, responds to changing needs, embraces diversity, values communication and collaboration, and is respectful, trusting, fair and collegial for all." It envisions a connected diverse, empowered, engaged, participatory culture of learning and excellence that promotes undergraduate student success and prepares students for their professional, community, social and personal lives. It also calls for a culture of excellence that attracts highly talented, diverse graduate students and produces graduates recognized as outstanding in their respective professions.
As the university moves towards 2025, periodic climate surveys will be implemented, with the first scheduled for fall 2014. While K-State has conducted or participated in climate surveys in the past, this will be the first comprehensive climate survey including faculty, staff and students.
